Late last night, detectives made a breakthrough when they arrested a 29-year-old suspect who is believed to be involved in the disappearance of Siam Lee. the suspect was arrested at his home in Hillcrest after an intensive investigation by the detectives. A Mercedes Benz Vito and an unlicensed firearm were seized at his house. Lee was reported missing at the Durban North police station on 4 January 2018. A few days later the burnt body of a woman was found at a sugarcane field in New Hanover and a murder case was opened. Detectives are still awaiting the results of DNA tests to confirm if the burnt body of the woman found at New Hanover is that of Siam Lee. Should that be the case, the suspect will be charged with her murder.


The KwaZulu-Natal Acting Provincial Commissioner, Major General Bheki Langa hailed the breakthrough. “Our detectives have been working tirelessly and this is the breakthrough we had hoped for. We will ensure that we do everything within our control to ensure that the suspect is placed before a competent court so that he can account for his actions, ” he said.
